Connection Groups are in full swing for the fall semester. Our Connection Groups provide our first and strongest line of congregational care. Each member of the group learns to support, pray and care for the others in their group so no one ever feels alone. Are you in a group, you should be! Contact Terri and she can help you get plugged into a group, terrib@westernhills.life. Small groups make the church come alive!
 
As a church we know we need to 'grow young' but how do we do this? In a great book, Growing Young by Kara Powell research suggests that churches can grow younger and be attractive to young people. (Here is an article if you do not want to read the book), Think about he suggestion in the last paragraph of the article as it could spur on some neat ideas.
 
Please be praying for our youth Connection Group - thanks Janet for leading this. Each of the youth are incredible and it is such a privilege to have them in our church.
 
Celebrate Recovery - here is a great story about how CR can help! Keep your eyes open for our first CR planning meeting.
